It is with joy, anticipation and excitement that we meet and greet you and your children. Thank you for entrusting 
each of them to our care. We will assure you that they will be cared for with love, respect, guidance, nurturing, 
and developmentally appropriate teaching methods. We invite you to join us at any time to revisit childhood at its 
best. Welcome to a wonderful beginning for children, their parents, and Butler County Community College. 
EduCare Center's Parent Handbook 



Revisit your childhood. That is how I felt on my visit to the EduCare Center. This is not a daycare and it definitely 
doesn't look like any school I remember. This is a playground, a building filled with wonderful toys, a children's paradise,

funded by the children's tu- 
funds, and a block grant from 
(SRS). The Center is licensed

Center begins its work with the 

rooster's crow at 6:00 a.m. and keeps on cranking out the love until 10:00 p.m., allowing students enrolled in night classes to 
have someplace to take their preschool, as well as school-aged children. In addition, Oil Hill School has agreed to provide 
transportation from the school to EduCare Center for parents whose classes start in mid-afternoon. 

The 26 member staff of the EduCare Center is not only warm and loving, but thoroughly trained. The EduCare 
Center is a working classroom for college students studying child care, development, and teaching. This type of classroom 
technique is excellent for the children, ensuring that there is always plenty of help on hand for nurturing and encouraging 
socialization skills. As for the students, Butler feels this type of hands-on training is going to turn out some of the best child 
care, teaching, and child development students in the State. 

The EduCare Center has worked to make mealtimes enjoyable. Staff and children sit together with parents being 
encouraged to come to lunch whenever they wish. The children are allowed to serve their own food and pour their own 
drinks — two major pluses on a child's list of cool things to do. As a learning experience, children are also allowed to help 
with preparation of the meal, which is even more cool than pouring their own drink. Snacks are readily available, because, 
according to the handbook, "Stomachs are not always on the same schedule, especially during growth spurts. Keeping this in 
mind each classroom has cereal and crackers available."

tollable floor? Not so with this new generation of nappers; the Center provides each child with a plastic-framed, nylon- 
covered cot and sheet. The best part from the children's point of view is that they are allowed to bring their pillows and teddy 
bears from home. Also, for those of you who remember being too restless to sleep, "Children are not forced to nap. 1 ' They are 
allowed quiet time activities that will not disturb those lost in dream land. 

The curriculum of the EduCare center is exciting. The children are allowed hands-on experience in most anything 
they do. Teachers work with a child's natural tendencies of interest and exploration to further their education. The theory 
behind much of the schooling is that, "A basis for lifelong learning begins with children actively investigating their environ-

young children out into

lations require each 
taking in sunshine and 

fresh air everyday, weather permitting. Wow! I wish the state required the rest of us to be taken out into the sunshine and fresh 
air everyday! 

Many of the toys the children play with they have created themselves, thus increasing enjoyment, self-esteem, and 
creativity. One such toy is the streamers they dance and swirl with. Each time I see the children in the yard playing with the 
streamers, my heart tugs to join them in their dances. I don't know about the rest of you, but it makes algebra look even more 
unappetizing. The children are even allowed to bring some items from home; yet toys, books, or videos of aggression are no- 
no's. The Center believes in the process of socializing the next generation to live in a more peaceful, gentle world. 

A final experience the Center instills in its children is responsibility. Children learn to care for and be responsible for 
caged pets. And, not a parent need fear, because all of the pets will have their vaccination records on file. 

Visiting the Center, I had the feeling of walking on sunshine. After reading through their handbooks I found myself 
hoping beyond hope that the Center not only succeeds, but that its idea spreads to other colleges. 

According to Administrator Sue Sommers, "The EduCare Center is proud to be a new part of the community and is 
thankful for the support it has been given in getting started. I am very pleased by the support and enthusiasm of the college 
and community. The Center has been a positive addition for the early childhood classes. I feel the child care students will be 
so much better trained due to the EduCare Center. I also feel that parents are feeling more secure that their kids are well cared 
for and loved, making their own jobs easier."

Decision f 96 




Tis the season — no, not the one with Santas, snowflakes, and decorated trees. It's the one with promising TV 
commercials, yard signs, and baby kissing. 

This year is the Big One. We go to the polls to mark some little boxes with our No. 2 pencils behind red, white, 
and blue striped canvas curtains to give some lucky person a high paying job and the opportunity to run the country for 
the next four years. 

Why do we bother to vote? Although many complex answers can come from a question such as this, it boils 
down to the fact that America requests a democratic society and this is how we achieve it. 

How do we know that our one vote counts? For some, the daily struggles we face in life leave us feeling inad- 
equate and insignificant in a country so large, so they don't bother to vote. Once in a while, political races are won or lost 
by just a few votes. 

For others who choose not to vote, the issue stems from 
minority where they reside. What if 10,000 people in the 
voted. Look at the difference one vote could make if 
didn't count actually voted. According to Ernie 

Election Commissioner, approximately 24,000 of the 
show up at the polls on November 5. 

What really does happen on elec 
who vote, we cast our ballot, go home, 
the media . Behind the scenes, though 
quired to do this job. Although 
sands of volunteers spend the 
wee hours of the night help- 
dream. 

In Butler 

teers man the forty-five 
volunteers bring the ballots 
be counted. 

Once the ballots have 
five extra election day staff spend 
which "reads" the pencil marks and 
them are hand-counted. 

Upon finishing the count, which can run many hours into the night or the following day, the results are 

sent to the Kansas Secretary of State. If, for some reason, a re-count is requested, the process could last longer than the 
Jerry Lewis Labor Day Telethon. Then, the final results are released and a winner is declared. Yes, Virginia, there can be a 
Santa Claus if you're on the winning side. 

1996 is the first year a voter can request a ballot to be mailed to them so they can vote earlier than November 5. 
This is due to the passage of the National Voter Registration Act, which gives a person no excuse for not voting if he or she 
can't make it to the polls on election day. 

Candidates in local races, such as those running for sheriff and county commission would like you to remember 
that it's not just "the big races" that are important, but the races that effect your local government as well. Besides, it only 
takes a few minutes to vote.

Bill Clinton, Bob Dole, and Ross Perot are three candidates for President who will be trying to get 

your vote November 5th. However, for Butler freshman Karina Lindahl of Augusta, voting for the first 

time will mean much more than just being a part of the democratic process in electing the next President. 

It will be an opportunity to cast her vote for cousin, Bob Dole. 

According to Lindahl, "I have been brought up Republican all my life and 

I will vote that way." 

Lindahl grew up in Dole's hometown of Russell, Kansas and graduated 

from the high school where where she can still remember playing in the band 

as part of a welcome home tribute to Dole. 

"I felt I was doing something for Bob Dole. I was part of the welcome 

home tribute. It seemed a lot more special to me than just being a member of 

the audience," said Lindahl. 

Although Lindahl will be voting for her famous relative, she said that she 

would be feeling some disappointment in connection with his win. 

"If he wins, I'll be mad because my brother gets to go to Washington D.C. 

with the band and attend the inaugural address. They might even get to play 

for him," Lindahl said.

STUDENT RUNS FOR STATE LEGISLATURE 

by T. J. Kilian 

Lowering taxes, supporting education and easing government regulations are just three of the 
issues that Butler sophomore, David Glover of Towanda, wants to address. Glover is running for a 
seat in the Kansas House of Representatives as a Democrat 
from the 75th district. He is also a member of the Academic 
Challenge Team, where his expertise is in history. 

He began his campaign by talking to groups, teachers, 
and unions, and won his primary to have his name put on the 
November ballot. Glover has been interested in politics most 
of his life, and thinks he would do a great job if elected. 

"President Clinton is just misunderstood, but I'm 
definitely his supporter. Dole is a nice guy, he just has con- 
flicting views, and is kind of a grumpy old man. Perot is a 
cornball. His ideas, attitude, and personality promote him as 
strange," according to Glover. Running for State House of Repre-

Phenomenal 

By Nichole Kind 

"The Learning Lab is not mandated, nor funded by law; however, BCCC believes it to be an 
integral part of the Special Needs Program." I observed Liane Fowler, Coordinator of Special Needs 
smile broadly as she made this statement to me. Interviewing Liane I found that her smile was due to the 
fact that Butler Community College is a phenomenal school that enjoys providing what the law does not 
require. 

Four years ago when Liane joined BCCC there were only five documented Special Needs stu- 
dents (anybody who has a documented learning disability and/ or a physical impairment and/or a mental 
handicap and/ or is physically challenged) that she could find files on. Now the Special Needs Student 
department has grown to over 300 members. Liane Fowler credits much of that growth to the college 
administration: Vicki Long; Ted Albright; her own director, Paul Kyle; and Bill Rinkenbaugh. They 
realize that this branch of the student body has every right to be here and as a college BCCC must serve 
them. 

Liane feels fortunate that the administration has provided special funding to pay for note-takers, 
which are persons who assist a special needs student in a classroom situation. BCCC has the luxury of 
being able to pay note-takers, to purchase required equipment, to stock voice activated tape recorders, to 
provide special computers, and to equip a Learning Lab. 

Although BCCC already provides an outstanding peer tutoring program, the requirements of the 
special needs students were quickly overwhelming the volunteers of the program, and luckily the institu- 
tion saw the uniqueness of this problem. To solve the problem, a secondary tutoring lab was funded. The 
Special Needs learning lab is similar to a public school's resource room. Yet, in this tiny room many 
students are able to make their dreams come true, through hard work, devotion and determination. 

It seems that this room goes through its hardest test of patience by the hidden disability students. 
It is easy to understand a standard program being designed for visually impaired persons but it is diffi- 
cult to design a standard program for people with hidden disabilities. Why? To look at them you would 
not know that they had a disability. They have slightly different problems and since you cannot literally 
see the problem it is hard to make a program comfortable to them. 

As the Special Needs Program has grown, so has its voice. Although it is illegal to actually 
recruit a student on the basis of his or her disability Butler has made every effort to inform pending 
students of programs the institution offers. One sensational point about Butler is how they work to 
promote all aspects of college life in the brochure packets sent out to area schools. The Special Needs 
Program is placed beside academics, sports, and theatre, letting a person with a special need know right 
from the start that BCCC is ready to create a new comfort zone for them. This allows them to succeed at 
a college that not only cares, but is proud of the entire student body. 

'There are not many institutions as supportive as BCCC, and for that I am really fortunate to be 
allowed to build this kind of program. I am very lucky to have a staff that just gives and gives and gives. 
. . I have a pretty phenomenal staff," says Liane Fowler. 

When asking Justin Harper how he felt about schooling since coming to Butler he replied, "You 
got to learn to be kind of quick at it (learning), because on some occasions you don't get a second 
chance. Yet, I feel that everything has gone just fine; it has helped me out a lot." 
Page 12 



This is a statement that could be considered true for any one of the students being helped by the 
program. 

"When they (the students) don't do well you take it personally, you feel 'what could I have done 
differently,' and when they succeed you're like, 'Yes! I helped.'" The pride and mischievousness Liane 
shows on her face when making this statement is well placed, for success is a hard won prize, especially 
when working with people with disabilities. 

As in all great successes the Special Needs program has worked hard to come a long way, yet 
feels it has a long way to go. Their next step is to create a Special Needs Student Organization similar to 
the International Students Organization.

fees for being in the ' — I Special Needs pro- 
gram and use of all the Learning Lab 
equipment and tutors are free of charge. Mark Sanborn has set up an Internet Computer in his lab that is 
accessible to students with musculoskeletal disabilities; at this time few other institutions are known to 
have one. The best aspect of all is that once you enlist in the Special Needs program you have Liane 
Fowler fighting in your corner. I found with a spirit like hers, you could not ask for a better champion. 

According to Matt Braden, ""Butler County Community College only hires the best. If they had 
not hired Liane, who knows where we would be? We are now one of the most accessible junior colleges 
in the state, possibly in the country."

Schaum," Matt Braden's Pride and Joy 

Schaum is not a guide dog, for Matt 
can see, but a service dog. She not only 
helps Matt maneuver through his day, but 
is his personal bodyguard. He informed 
me that Schaum quickly learns who and 
what is normal in an area and is defen- 
sive to anything that is outside the bound- 
aries of what she has learned is normal. 
Moreover, Schaum is positive that our 
costumed Grizzly mascot is not normal 
and really wants him to stay well away 
from her boss. Matt also told me that 
Schaum's bark is worse than her bite. She 
is a highly trained dog and is required to 
follow a strict work detail. Matt says he 
doesn't mind letting people pet Schaum.

Welcome to El 
Dorado, population 
13,000 and growing ev- 
ery day. In fact, this 
great town of ours is cel- 
ebrating its 125 anniver- 
sary, yet, some students 
feel this place has noth- 
ing to offer them as far 
as a night life. Well, to 
those students who feel 
this way, you are not 
looking hard enough. 

For example, to all of you food connois- 
seurs, I might suggest our newest addition to the 
restaurant scene, Twisted Sisters. After all, they 
serve breakfast when the bars close. But for those 
who are underage and have no thoughts of alco- 
hol, might I suggest the social epi-center of the 
Dillons Deli/Chinese Kitchen. Good times are had 
by all when sharing a plate of Lemon Chicken. 

Now then, for you athletically inclined 
Grizzlies who just can't find the perfect week-end 
workout location, Wal-Mart is just up your "aisle". 
If you begin your journey at Women's Apparel and 
go straight through Hardware, turning at Lawn & 
Garden then you will complete your mini-mara- 
thon somewhere between Pets and Small Appli- 
ances. If running is not your thing and computer 
students I am talking to you, then the Electronics 
Department is your home. When the Super 
Nintendo and Sega machines are set up they can 
provide hours of brain-stimulating enjoyment. 
However, I feel that I must warn you because the 
high school students also know about this site. 
When you show up come early and take no pris- 
oners. 

Finally, I want to direct your attention to 
the great lake of the midwest (or at least Kansas) 
and the reason El Dorado is still on the map. It is 
of course our beautiful El Dorado Dam and Res- 
ervoir. While I could write a whole column on 
just the lake, I will not. However, just let me say 
number one: never go bridge jumping without the 
proper protection... safety first. Oh, and no matter 
how much soda you have had to drink or what 
your friends might say, it will still hurt in the morn- 
ing. Number two: if during your stay at Butler you 
ever have to pay the ranger for a parking sticker, 
then you are not being resourceful enough. 

With that said, I will leave you with just 
one more piece of advice to get you through the 
long nights. The skate center is closed for remod- 
eling.

When it comes to entertainment and its most popular form, 
movies are the first on the list. Since the days of Charlie Chaplin 
and The Three Stooges, audiences have been flocking to the big 

screen. 

Whether rushing to the theatre to see the latest blockbusters 

such as INDEPENDANCE DAY, or staying in the privacy of your 

own home and renting new releases such as HAPPY GILMORE, 

the movies have been the most popular antidote for boredom.

Once accused of being a "clone" band, Stone Temple Pilots 
continue to prove with each new single that they have a sound 
uniquely their own. As always, the lyrics are indecipherable, 
evidence that singer Scott Weilland was on something when 
he wrote them. 

No doubt about it, " Spiderwebs," the latest single by No Doubt, 
is as catchy as its namesake. However, the song is more com- 
pelling when performed live or on MTV, with singer Gwen 
Stefani sensually strutting, shaking, and sweating. 
"Where It's At," the first offering from Beck's new album 
"Odelay" is pretty disappointing when compared with "Loser." Beck does nothing that 
the Beastie Boys haven't already done better. 

It's amazing that "E-Bow the Letter" was recorded live, considering the high 
sound quality. It has been cleaned up well and is a testament to R.E.M.'s musical ability 
that they can play well enough live to justify skipping recording at a studio. This song 
was bland at first bite, but it leaves a pleasant aftertaste. 

Smart marketing has landed "Stupid Girl" by Garbage in Billboard's top five. 
Singer Shirley Manson and company serve up Curve leftovers with spice to conceal the 
original flavor. Nevertheless, while this is certainly not the best Garbage has to offer, 
"Stupid Girl" is a good song. 

Why doesn't Chris Cornell sing? Soundgarden's frontman wails his way through 
"Burden In my Hand" like a hair-band relic from the 80 's, casting a shadow over the 
instrumental brightness that his bandmates radiate. 

If the song "Standing Outside A Broken Phone Booth With Change In My Hand" 
by Primitive Radio Gods lasted as long as it takes to say its name, it would still be too 
long. This song is monotonous, repetitive, boring, and uninspired. The only redeeming 
quality it has is the brief vocal interludes hijacked from from the throat of B.B. King. It 
is no wonder it was on the soundtrack for "The Cable Guy." It's like the punch line of a 
bad joke. 

3 1 1 is another band whose songs are much better live. "Down" is a good song, 
but not as enjoyable as it is when you are skanking (ska-dancing) to the rhythm. This is 
better heard at parties than in the car or while doing homework, as it naturally boosts 
energy that cannot be safely released in a subdued environment. 

Pearl Jam seems to regress musically and lyrically with each new album as 
evidenced by " Who You Are," a droning coma-inducing song off their new album "No 
Code." Theories speculate that their decline began when: (1) they fired their former 
drummer, who has more talent in a nosehair than the new one, (2) they quit being a band 
and became a cause, and ( 3) they started obsessing over Neil Young. What was once a 
good band seems to be only a shadow of their former selves.

BCCC sponsors conference 

On Thursday, September 19, BCCC sponsored the 
"Project Action Conference." The conference was 
held for parents in order to help them cope with rais- 
ing teenagers today. Officer Dave Step was on hand 
to speak to local eighth graders and their parents. Rob- 
ert Simon, substance abuse and violence prevention 
specialist for USD 259, was also asked to speak at 
the luncheon. 

Dean retires after 
40 years of dedication 

After 26 years serving BCCC, Curt Shipley, dean 

of behavioral sciences, math and physical education, 
retired in July. During his many years working in the 
education field Shipley has held a variety of posi- 
tions including coaching, athletics director, educator 
as well as other jobs. 

Many students feel that they can talk to Shipley 
about almost anything that's on their minds. He re- 
sponded by saying "To me, there is only one way to 
be. You have to be accessible to your young people 
and let them know that you're in their corner." 

Butler receives grants for school 

During the September meeting of the Board of Trustees, Butler Grants Officer, Judy Carney, an- 
nounced that the school is set to receive in upwards of $900,000, with over $810,304 coming from 
federal and state agencies and over $96,235 coming from other outlets. Totaled, the grant money will 
only account for approximately one-third to one-half of the total operating budget. 

"As the sources of traditional aid from places like the state decline, it becomes important that alter- 
native means for raising the money be found. That is why the need for grants, like the Title Three Grant, 
used for expanding technology, become key to supplementing our internal budget," said President 
Jacqueline Vietti. 

On August 19, the BCCC Endowment Association held its fourth annual Golf Tournament which 
was located at Willowbend Golf Course in Wichita. The golfing weekend netted the endowment asso- 
ciation an estimated $6,500 and was the brain child of Rocky Waitt of Rose Hill, who is an endowment 
board member and the Tourney chairman. The first place team of Jerry Peterson, Steve Spines, Tom 
Wallace and Tim Maher also took home over $1,100 in merchandise from the Willowbend Pro Shop.

77i£ Fantasticks do a double take 

For the first time in eight years the fine arts 
department is doublecasting for the season opener, 
The Fantasticks, which ran in early October. The idea 
for the double cast was discussed by the department's 
instructors and became a reality when the audition 
call produced around 40 students. The decision for 
the large cast was made so that more students could 
participate in the theatrical experience. 

Dr. Phil Speary described the rehearsals as 
a "three-ring circus, " with the actors learning lines, 
staging, music, and dance simultaneously through- 
out the 700 building. Speary explained, "it's great 
to have the resourses so you can do it." 



Livestock Judging Team places first 

In late September the BCCC Livestock 
Judging Team traveled to Wichita to com- 
pete in the MidAmerica Livestock Judging 
contest. The team brought home a first-place 
overall award. 

The team went on to take the first place 
in swine, cattle and oral reasons. They also 
placed third in sheep. Individually, Eric 
Kinsley of Rochester, Minn., took first in 
cattle, oral reasons, and overall; Galen 
Slough of Gruver, Texas, second in swine, 
second in cattle; Quint Scripter of Council 
Grove, third in sheep; and Beth Brautigam 
of Rosebud, Mo., third in cattle and fourth 
in oral reasons.

Simply say the name Breed around almost any col- 
lege baseball player and you'll see a spark of recogni- 
tion. No, it's not a baseball player, coach or even sports- 
caster . It's the family name of a woman who has come 
to be known as mom by many of the baseball players 
who come to play in the NBC College World Series. 

"She's awesome. I'm going to tell my mom, real 
mom, she needs to catch up. She's just awesome," said 
Matt Weisel, a senior from California. 

Vicki Breed and Dick Breed are volunteer host par- 
ents during the summer baseball season. Any player need- 
ing a host family can stay with them. At this year's NBC 
games Vicki had eight players staying at her home, in- 
cluding her son Josh Breed. Josh had to make a sacrifice 
in order to make room for the visiting players. 

" I have two bedrooms, one upstairs and one down- 
stairs because the room upstairs isn't big enough for three 
guys — well actually eight guys. They're all staying in 
the basement. It is actually my bedroom,'' said Josh 
Breed. 

Although taking care of eight boys between the ages 
of eighteen and twenty-four may seem like a heavy load, 
the Breeds have developed some rules in order to make 
everything a bit easier. 

"I only have two rules: I do their laundry and I get 
to spoil them. This is a gift for us. There isn't anything 
we'd rather be doing. This is more fun than anything 



else we could be doing. It's boring without them 
around,' 1 said Vicki Breed. 

Playing pool, basketball, video games, watching 
videos, playing on the computer and going to Old Town 
are just a few of the activities the boys take part in 
while staying with the Breeds, making "Camp Breed" 
as many several of the players call it, an accurate de- 
scription of the household. 

The Breeds have never kept track of how much 
money they spend on food or drink for the boys, but 
Vicki guessed they took anywhere from 25-30 show- 
ers a day and drank two to three gallons of milk or 
juice a day. The players counted the soda cans they 
had in the house and said they could invite five hun- 
dred of their friends over and still have soda left over. 

" The girls I know are always asking if they can 
come over and stay the night. They think it's cool liv- 
ing with all these guys and I get to learn about base- 
ball," said Josh Breed. 

Nathan Reese, the catcher from the Wichita State 
Shockers explained why he and the others like staying 
with the Breeds. 

" They make you feel welcome and they make 
everyone feel welcome. It doesn't matter if you play 
baseball or not, they like to have kids, that's all," he 
said.

When the National Baseball Congress 
World Series tournament began, the El 
Dorado Broncos weren't one of the teams to 
be wary of. A single win in the World Series 
was a high goal to strive for. But that wasn't 
the case three weeks into the tournament. 

Although the Broncos entered the series 
posting a 26-22 record, and a fourth place fin- 
ish in the regional tournament, they still faced 
what seemed to be insurmountable odds. 

The Broncos were looking at a top-ten 
finish in the 42-team tournament and finally 
starting to show some force by the middle of 
the tournament. 

On August 12, the team finally reached 
its goal winning the NBC World Series and 
beating Tacoma 13-8. Scoring more runs 
against a team that came in with a 3.98 earned 
run avearage— more than any game played 
during the series.

You may remember when El Dorado Lake was one of the finest largemouth bass fisheries in the 
state of Kansas. But if you have fished the lake lately you have probably noticed the decline in the 
amount and size of the bass being pulled out. According to Jaime Miller, who reguraly fishes Eldorado 
Lake, "You can catch some small largemouth but no big ones." 

El Dorado State Park's wildlife biologist, Ron Marteney, has the answer to why fishing at El 
Dorado has gone from one of the best fisheries in the state to one of the worst. 

According to Ron Marteney, "the problem is the lack of proper nursury habitat utilized by bass 
and other gamefish to hide from predators." After spawning, the young bass need a place to hide until 
they grow large enough to protect themselves from predators. During their first year is when they are the 
most susceptible to being eaten by other, larger fish. 

Although the lake isn't in good condition now, that wasn't always the case. In the early '80's, it 
provided an abundance of flooded habitat for the bass. However, the flooded plants that once protected 
the young bass could not sustain themselves underwater; they have all died and decayed by now. Unfor- 
tunately, the lake has not naturally established any aquatic vegetation on its own and it is doubtful that it 
ever will for several reasons. 

Marteney has submitted a proposal to manually introduce aquatic plants to the underwater 
enviroment. After submitting his proposal to the Kansas Wildlife and Parks and to the Coips of Engi- 
neers, they sought the expertise of Dr. Michael Smart of Louisville Aquatic Research in Texas. Dr. Smart 
had previously conducted several projects similiar to the one in El Dorado with success. "Dr. Smart 
suggested changes and modifications in the plan," said Marteney. 

This project ensures the survival of plants by preventing wind, waves, carp, and turtles from 
killing the vegetation. Early this spring the project was started by lowering the water level several feet so 
that fences could be constructed across coves. This would help prevent some of the waves from damag- 
ing the plants. Small fenced enclosures were also added to provide a place in which to keep the aquatic 
plants, preventing turtles and carp from eating the plants. 

So far, Wildlife and Parks and the Corps of Engineers have fenced off three separate coves, and 
set out six pairs of fenced enclosures. They have planted a variety of native aquatic plants in the enclo- 
sures to find which plants will produce best. These established plants will serve as founder colonies and 
will eventually spread around the lake on their own. While the lake's water level is still lowered, Wild- 
life and Parks has planted grass seeds on the exposed mud flats, by using a plane. The mud flats are now 
covered in grass, which will eventually be flooded when the water reaches its normal level. This vegetaion 
will last for not much longer than a year, but will produce excellent habitat for fingerling bass while it is 
there. Marteney expects the water to reach its normal level when next year's spring rains come. 

Marteney is planning on the project taking a total of two years to complete, if all goes well and 
mother nature cooperates. He also estimates the cost of the project when it is completed to be around 
$250,000. The Coips of Engineers will fund 75% of the cost, and the remaing 25% will be covered by 
Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks. Hopefully, this project will help the aquatic vegetation to 
establish itself around the lake and therefore allow the bass population to grow. This project has a great 
chance of success thanks to the time and effort put into it by all. And please help the bass population 
grow by practicing catch and release.

It's official: the Walnut Valley Festival is on for next year, 
despite rumors that the festival would be sold due to owner Bob 
Redford's age and health problems. The Walnut Valley Festival, 
which began in 1972, is a huge event which brings people from 
all over the country and from all walks of life. It draws the very 
rich in their Italian loafers who refuse to sit on the port-o-potties 
and it draws the poor who get so drunk that they pass out in the 
port-o-potties. There are the very old and the very young, and just 
about everyone has a stupid hat on. You'd be intimidated if you're 
not carrying a guitar or wearing a ten-year-old "Picker's Para- 
dise" t-shirt. It's crazy-amaza-crazy how one event can draw such 
a cross-section of the population. You've got your old hippies and 
your new, lame hippies; your stodgy fanners and your blue-haired 
punks. I'll never understand why those young'uns are there. 
Shouldn't they be out banging their heads against an amplifier 
and huffing household cleaning products? These folks all come 
for the same two reasons: the people and the music, which in- 
cludes western, Irish, old-time country, folk, blues, and Cajun, 
along with bluegrass. 

I've been to the Walnut Valley thing before and I camped. 
So I was surprised when I left my car in a parking lot a mile away 
from any of the stages. Getting to the lot was the hard part. My 
little, low-to-the-ground car sludged through at least a foot of mud, 
but miraculously made it to the grass. It was a sorry excuse for a 
parking lot. Luckily there was a tram waiting to pick me up, and 
all the other people who battled the mud. The tram assistant (i.e. 
the person who helps the old fogies on and off so that they don't 
break a hip) told the passengers about the fifteen hundred volun- 
teers when she said, "It's [the Walnut Valley Festival] a testament to the community and the people who 
believe in it." 

The festival is full of sights and sounds, but it made me regret that I am not hard of smelling. 
There was a plethora of smells and none were good. Everyone was barbecuing, but what was on the grill 
I don't want to know. Diane Wahto, Butler instructor, tries to avoid the campground because, "When I 
get back to Wichita my lungs really hurt." 

Wahto has worked at the information booth for twenty years. "I enjoy working because it pays 
my way in. People from all over the world come by." Wahto lived and taught in Winfield for ten years so 
it's a homecoming for her; a chance to see long-time friends and kick back and relax. "Whatever work 
I have to do, I just leave it behind." 

If you're feeling down about the state of the world and just want to get away from it all, come to 
Winfield on the third week of September and let it all hang out.
